Auntie Em! Auntie Em! It's a Twister!

Sirens all over the northside. Firehouses trigger their alarm system. Everyone in a panic - we though the cubs had won a game of something, but it just turned out to be some clouds that we're rotating ominously. Scientists are now speculating that it may have been a flock of vultures circling the political carcasses of Stroger, Daley and Blago. We can only hope.

Channel 7 and the Sun Times have coverage.

Madame Shaniqua and her psychic friends network predict a catastrophic occurrence of biblical proportions in Chicago before year's end.

It will not involve Pat Sajak.

A "microburst" hit the area arounf Addiso and Central tonight. ER doors blown off at OLR and many windows too. Trees down, roofs damaged. I think it was more than a lil wind guys!

What the hell is up with our $600,000,000.00 O.E.C.C.?

The tornado/air raid sirens were blasting for over 5 minutes when a beat car asked O.E.C.C. what was going on...on Zone 9.

The O.E.C.C. dispatcher related, We don't know why the Air Raid Sirens are going off.

HOW CAN THE CITY'S 911 CONTROL CENTER NOT KNOW WHEN THE CITY ACTIVATES THE AIR RAID SIREN CITYWIDE? YOU KNOW HOW MANY COPPERS AS WELL AS CITIZENS WOULD OF BEEN KILLED IF THAT WAS AN ACTUAL TORNADO SPOTTED ON THE NORTH BORDER OF THE CITY?

THIS ASSHOLE MAYOR IS MORE CONCERNED ABOUT A FRICKEN 95,000 SEAT STADIUM THAN REAL PROBLEMS IN THIS CITY.

WANTS TO BLOW MILLIONS ON THE OLYMPICS BUT TAKE AWAY RETIRED POLICE OFFICERS AND FIGHFIGHTER'S MEDICAL INSURANCE.

THIS IS A SCANDAL!

THIS MAYOR SHOULD BE INDICTED FOR HIS ANTICS!

IMAGINE IF THIS CITY WAS HIT BY TERRORISTS. NO EQUIPTMENT OF ANY KIND IN OUR SQUAD CARS, FLASHLIGHTS THAT LAST 20 MINUTES AT BEST. WE ARE SCREWED!

This past friday at appx. 6:00 P.M., I attempted to visit the new Chicago Police Memorial that I had read and heard so much about. With the weather threatening, I wound my way east on 18th st toward the east side of Soldier field past locked wrought iron enclosed parking lots and "no parking" any time roads. I searched for a place to park but was unable to find anything. There was a "drop off only" area by Soldier Field, and a Permit Only
for boaters. As impressive as the Memorial appeared to be from a distance, I was disappointed that there was no parking accomadation made at a relatively slow time of the day. The closest parking I could find was on Solidarity drive; but, with the inclement weather, i decided to put my visit off till a later date.
Being in somewhat decent shape, i have no problem walking a few blocks, but what about seniors, or others unable to walk very far.
Maybe I missed something, or someplace to park, but how does the average joe visit the Memorial.

Yea! yea! yea! everything is a scandal in this City. You think your going to live forever? If you need a flashlight that will work for more then 20 minutes, I advise you to buy one. If your CPD pension isn't going to allow you to live the life style that you want it to.....get another job. If this city isn't up to your standards MOVE!!! But you won't! You'll spend the rest of your miserable life moaning, groaning about things that you are powerless to change or control. So while you have a chance to alter things to your way of thinking..........make a change, before the years go by and you're locked in....go away, far, far, away

Sitting in the cave with no windows, we can't see if there is a tornado outside let alone any other weather conditions. It wasn't til a few of the calltakers started screaming across the room there is funnel sightings, notifications were made to the joc room, whereas they told us they knew about it. If you think they don't care about you in the field imagine how much they don't care for us inside. I'm sure they were able to call their loved ones up and make sure they were ok at home, not the other way around.
Microburst is Daley's way of saying we had a tornado. He can't admit that we have tornados here in the Chicago.

9/23/2006 02:59:00 AM is so right!

One of our highest ranking exempts once stated department policy to a staff meeting,

"It is not practical to train individual officers to respond to a terrorist attack."

and, "Just listen to the radio and we will tell you what to do."

WE are screwed and this person got promoted.

Everyone better have their own plan, for themselves and their families if this does happen, and as the Peter Karl video states, your best defense is distance.

OFF TOPIC BUT IMPORTANT:
Your shitty unionwould not send a rep out to a police involved shooting in 007 last night. Union was called by two Sergeants and the officer (I know this for a fact)but sent no one. Granted the officer's shot did not hit the bad guy (In custody)who had rob and shot another person, but for the amount of money they steal from your checks every month they could at least show their faces. Dispicable.

I tossed out that POS flashlight that the department gave us a few years ago and bought a $5 halogen light that's 100% better. When the light only last 20 minutes, the battery cell is no good anymore. It lasted, what 2 years? Geez.

"Blago" is afraid to answer questions from young people according to tonight's news.

I for one cannot understand why Donohue endorsed him.

I guess that it is just a matter of time before he endorses the "Toddler".

You are so right about the flashlights. They are useless. The Kel-Lights were much better. I don't understand why the Dept does not want us to use the Kel-lights because we may hit someone with them but allow us to carry a wooden baton and also allow us to carry a METAL expandable baton. Makes no sense

I took the Orange Line in to Roosevelt, then the #12 bus which will take you all the way to the park. You can also bicycle, if you can handle the changing weather.

This bus runs late. But the parking situation does suck...
